Found this interesting insect in my moms garden in Cape Town, Western Cape, South Africa.
It looks similar to a grasshopper but have no idea what it is. Have never seen this before. Hope you can help identify it.

Dear JC Hanekom,
This looks to us like a Cape Longhorn,
Ceroplesis capensis, which is pictured on iSpot, but for some reason, your individual is missing its distinctive long antennae.
